sorry for delay im old and keep losing internet connection,

could you advise me of a defence as I am pleading not guilty, I do not want to get 3 penalty points.

it was a van I was driving and not a car towing a trailer as Scottish police state in their evidence

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
Yes I know the feeling today.

Do you accept doing 61 mph? If so on what basis are you hoping to appeal?

Just a quick reminder, there is an information request here from the Expert. This means they need to know more details before they will be able to give you a full answer.

Thank you,
